Good reptile vet

Hi Everybody,

My male brazilian has suffered a prolapse. Can anyone please suggest a good reptile vet in jhb are?

Only when the last tree has been cut down,
the last river has been poisoned
and the last fish caught,
only then will we realize that money cannot be eaten!!

Go to Dr Shabeer in Edenvale at Terrace Road Vet. He is very good with most exotic reptiles.

Tel: 011 524 6011

Just for your interest, possibly soak her prolapse in highly concentrated (read saturated) sugar water. That often works wonders.
